Library collections are evolving, with digital representations of content becoming far more common. Library websites serve, for many, as the first access point to collections; therefore the design of these websites needs to be an essential consideration. A user base may, and likely will, reflect a large degree of variation, some presenting substantial challenges.  How can we present material in ways that limit barriers to access, while preserving, or enhancing the users' experience? What new methods can we develop to aid in the process? How can we use social web design and online collaborative tools, (wiki's for example)? This session will address these issues while exploring general web design principals, and applying them to a library context.
